OK to make "correct" generalizations

I had to chuckle at this Kurt Busiek retweeted response to politically correct scifi writer John Scalzi:


Now, while the "ALL" part of her second point is certainly debatable, I would certainly buy it if she said "A LOT." But this is beside the point. A tweet like this tweet is permissible among the Scalzis and Busieks of the [entertainment] world because it impugns a politically incorrect group -- men -- and "protects" a politically correct group -- women.

I wonder: Does anyone think Scalzi or Busiek would tweet (or retweet) something like "So again, let's say we don't pretend that terrorism isn't a issue MOSTLY about Muslims. Not ALL Muslims, but certainly too many of them"? Or, "And the point isn't "MOST Muslims are terrorists." The point is "MOST terrorists are Muslims"?

Nah. Neither do I. That subject ain't "incorrect" enough for them.

Boom! Right on the money, Hube. (Hmmm...I don't know if 'boom' was the right word, since we're talking about "workplace violence." Sorry if that was insensitive. I know certain comic book creators are incredibly sensitive.)

I, too, dread the 4-day weekends??They stare at me and complain that they??e bored, yet refuse to do anything bearing any semblance to an activity. I??l have play doh, arts and crafts, cookies, dancing, yoga, etc, but anything other than plonking them in front of the TV or reading to them will elicit complaints. Maybe we??l put up the tree on Friday, it??l be SOMETHING TO DO.

An artist will have to be almost oblivious to what's being painted. Instead the a much greater pinpoint the raw visual data. Precisely what is literally being seen? Irregular lines and shapes? Is it dark, light or some shade among? Where, exactly, will they have a intersect? When precise interest in these four elements comes together a tremendous likeness has decided to form.
